2000 Report On The Trillion-Dollar Bank Shakedown

Back in 2000, Howard Husok wrote in the City-Journal about how the Clinton Presidency and the left-wing groups created a shake down of banks.  It is a thorough read and as you read it you realize how the housing bubble and collapse came to be.  Here is the lead in with link to read more … Continue reading

If You Make $50,000 Per Year, You Pay…. Debunked

This photo has made the rounds on social media for a couple years and I was requested to research it. Our tax system is too convoluted to make simplistic assertions such as this.  Or, perhaps since it is so convoluted one can make assertions such as this.  The dates listed at the bottom of the … Continue reading

Runaway Slave

I recently watched the movie Runaway Slave as it is now available to watch On Demand by many cable providers.  It is an inspirational movie about C.L. Bryant’s journey from former NAACP local chapter president to Tea Party participant, and his journey across America to find others who are running from the government plantation of entitlements.  Along … Continue reading

Now Dismantling Obama’s Talking Points

“Acts of Terror”.  We will start at the end where some are going to focus on the debate of language.  You can read the President’s transcript from his speech in the Rose Garden where he referred in generalities to “acts of terror.”  I strongly suggest reading the transcript in context of everything else coming from the … Continue reading

Dismantling Biden’s VP Debate Talking Points

Where to begin? Health care and religious freedom.  VP Joe Biden stated, “With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has … Continue reading

Sorting Through the Politics of Labeling

(Previous posted, but has been edited and reposted with additional information) Fascism.  Nazism.  Communism.  Liberalism.  Conservatism.  Socialism.  Marxism.  Capitalism.  Corporatism.  Statism.  Libertarianism.  Despotism.  Progressivism. How does one navigate through all of the overlapping meanings? George W. Bush was called a fascist and compared to Hitler.  The comparisons were absurd, just as they are for Barrack … Continue reading

Founding Fathers, Debt, and Bubbles

Barack Obama and the main stream media at some point in this election will attempt again to change the discussion from the perils of the public debt to one of income inequality (which we earlier refuted to be a bogus argument).  The public debt is the greatest danger we face today.  It stands at a … Continue reading

Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street on Income Inequality

There is a new Democrat proposal for a Reasonable Profits Board that would monitor profits made by oil & gas companies in order to apply a windfall profit tax of any profits the board deems are beyond reasonable.  This proposal is part of their Gas Price Spike Act.  The failure here is twofold.  One, they simply focus on … Continue reading

Makers vs. Takers

James Madison warned that as our country grew in population, that those who were considered self-sufficient (or as we’ll discuss later, the makers) would be in the minority.  The risk would be that the majority would seek redistribution of wealth through the political process.  James Madison, In all civilized Countries the people fall into different … Continue reading

Others sometimes say it better

Actually, others often say it better.  Which is why you see politicians steal from other’s past speeches, and I devote an entire page to quotes from our Founding Fathers.  But, there is another page where I have posted videos from others who have been able to articulate information very succinctly and I encourage all my readers … Continue reading
